"Employ Humanity." It's not just a phrase we throw around. It's painted and posted on the walls in TheLadders' SoHo offices. It's a philosophy that lives in our genetic makeup. It's why we do what we do. And this weekend, more than a dozen volunteers lived that philosophy at our first ever Career Boot Camp event hosted by StreetWise Partners.
StreetWise Partners provides job-skills training and career mentoring for highly-motivated candidates facing multiple employment barriers. Seventy StreetWise mentors and trainees took part in a half-day event, which supported talent and economic growth in New York City. TheLadders best-in-class job matching service and content is a perfect fit for StreetWise and their mission! The day kicked off with a panel presentation comprised of TheLadders executives Alex Douzet and Ware Sykes, and StreetWise board members Orlando Ashford and Singleton Beato. After the panel, career advisors and resume writers from TheLadders conducted workshops for StreetWise participants on personal branding, effective networking and job applications.
We're looking forward to more events with StreetWise and continuing this important and inspiring partnership. We're also especially proud to support StreetWise and their ongoing mission. Together, we hope to one day "Employ Humanity."
